Information about the Sandcastle


In the summer, you can take a combined canoeing-floating sauna or cycling-floating sauna tour from the Sandcastle, or start riding a city bike. The stunning Saimaa Geopark sites are included in the new canoeing locations. The rental equipment includes basic hiking gear that gives tourists more opportunities to visit the archipelago and stay there overnight. Drakkar rental service points will be opened in Taipalsaari, Joutseno and Savitaipale, where you can either start your trip or end a trip that started from the Sandcastle.
